He played in todays game against the Diamondbacks. Went 0 for 2, but made a real nice catch in the outfield

It's great to have first hand knowledge.......could you tell me if it was right hand or left hand and what college did you pitch for.

Sox need from Owens same as they do from Willie and Spidale:

OBP
extra bases (steals or not) on the 'pads
defense
bunting
low salary
more OBP still

Forget about Slugging %.

Default Owens Facts

Owens has been timed down the line by ML Scouts, faster than Suzuki. He averages about 3.8 and has been timed as fast as 3.66.

He was the fastest receiver at UCLA at 4.46.

When talking about his arm or power, remember he missed his first year of rookie ball with shoulder surgery and probably had an injured shoulder in college. Last year was his first full year in the minors and he hit .292 with almost 20 doubles. AND 30 SB's.

Now he is 5/14 = .357 combined major and minor training camps and may be better than anyone thnks.This was a great trade for the Sox!

If that's the case, then he's going to be a HELL of a player, because I like him a lot. Was very impressed by that trade by Kenny.

Firstly,



Secondly, I sure hope your right. If he is as good of a player as you are making him out to be, then Kenny just got a huge steal.
